Renewal of Cautionary Announcement
Shareholders are referred to the renewal cautionary announcement released by Aspen on 7 March 2013 in which shareholders were advised of discussions between Aspen and MSD (known as Merck in the United States and Canada) in respect of a possible transaction comprising the acquisition of an active pharmaceutical ingredient facility situated primarily in the Netherlands and a related portfolio of pharmaceutical finished dose form products.
These discussions remain ongoing and may have a material effect on the price of Aspen’s securities if successfully concluded and accordingly shareholders are advised to continue exercising caution when dealing in Aspen’s securities.
